Lolympics: Day 7

By Sam Gibbs on at

In London 2012, even gold medalists take to the Tube, although probably not when there's a Central line collapse just when it starts to get busy. Anyway, that didn't stop our boys winning gold in the cycling last night, nor did it stop the remote-control Minis taking centre stage in the Olympic Stadium. Plus, have you ever wondered what athletes listen to on those massive cans they all seem to wear? Wonder no more, just mind out for the topless Ukrainian feminists while you're out and about, OK?
